One Single Impression: Through a Window

Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

Imagine
Beyond t
he shuttered window
The arms of the world
Opened for you--
The light, the song--
One saturates the other

In invisible waves that wash
The night away.


Imagine
Beyond the
shuttered window
Breaking day on the

Light edge of your dreams

Lithe and light as clouds

Bathed in song and light.


Imagine everything.

Then
fly.

  15. Having the choice of being able to open or close the shutters allows us the control of how much light we allow to be be shed upon our lives.
    Nice.
